Anna Olivier (Harry P. Leu Gardens)

Rosa hybrid, ‘Anna Olivier’ Rosaceae, Tea Rose, introduced 1872 as seen while visiting Harry P. Leu Gardens, near Orlando, Florida. Image was captured shortly after the gardens opened to the public before the breezes started blowing, allowing me to capture this image with a greater depth of field keeping almost the entire flower in focus.

White Rose (Harry P. Leu Gardens)

I have found white flowers to be very difficult to capture in an image that shows their texture and not be over exposed. I believe that this is the best image that I have captured of a white rose and wanted to share it with you. The image was captured in the early morning while visiting Harry P. Leu Gardens, near Orlando, Florida.
